i have 2 questions on outlook calendar

1) when opening  outlook calendar , when i create new meeting - in TO column when i write 1 user name  and check the scheduling assistant , it shows like greyed out.

but when i type the same user name first in scheduling assistant it shows his free busy correctly

and this is happening with 1 user only all other users when i type in TO column , in scheduling assistant it shows there free busy

i checked default permission - to be owner , also ran outlook.exe /cleanfreebusy

2) i just created one shared mailbox having my company's bank holiday details in it , i opened outlook web access with the new company holiday mailbox and under share calendar added 2 users to see if the bank holiday calendar shows  up, but it didnt show up.

anything i am missing as i didnt run any powershell command

nothing worked
